The very nature of working at a watershed level means you should work with at least one partner to improve watershed conditions because it is often too complex and too expensive for a single entity. New ideas and input from partners not only provides a more solid commitment to solutions, but also helps to leverage resources. Stakeholders' involvement also increases the probability of long-term success through trust, commitment, and personal investment.
